Hi all,

I need to fetch all the rows where spaces is a part of column value with some restriction

For example:
my table structure is like
Code:

sno(int)    Country(char30)
1             United
2             United States 
3             India
4             Eastern Europe


My qury should fetch only the rows corresponding to "united States" and "Eastern Europe" only

Currently am struck up with a query like this
Code:

SELECT *                       
FROM Country_table
WHERE                         
 Country LIKE ' '


This query fetches everything as the value india is "indiabbbbbbb " (where b stands for spaces)

Kindly help me in solving this.hope am clear. please write back if am not clear.

Thanks [/code]
